I have to admit, I'll be a little sad when Vertical stops releasing the Black Jack series when they reach the last volume. I'm familiar with Tekuza's work for the most part, but I've never actually been able to collect & read his books in the past, so this is really eye opening for me. This is one series where every volume has been just as good as the first. (Although I will admit that I have my preferences for specific stories.)

The "god" of Japanese comics delivers. Very human, sensitive stories
and his humor is really something. RIP Tezuka, wherever you are. And
thank you for the books.
I should not even review this. Without reading the previous editions, I'm not quite sure what to think. I really didn't like the main character much and I'm not sure why he is doing what he's doing. He's obviously helping people, but I'm not sure why he's doing all these medical procedures. Art is aright but didn't seem as good as his other stuff. I wasn't interested enough that I feel a need to read any more. Probably my loss.

Love these medical stories from Tezuka.(different subject from him).

Another great volume in the series. All the stories were interesting and this one seemed a bit more gross then usual.
